By Msgr. Raffaelo Martinelli. Originally published in Italy by the same publisher as the best-selling The Eucharistic Miracles of the World and Little Catechism on the Eucharist. Gloriously illustrated with many colorful icon-style paintings. It is a question-and-answer instruction book which delves deeply into the meaning of the Mass, its foreshadowings in the Old Testament, the building in which it is celebrated, the objects used in the Mass, the vestments, the liturgical year, etc. Shows how the Eucharist shapes every aspect of the Church's life and our individual lives as Christians. Carries an imprimatur. 262 pp. Softcover. This volume, illustrated with many colorful pages, is a presentation of the Sacrament of the Eucharist for children and young people. The work begins by examining how the Eucharist was prefigured in the Old Testament, and then continues by describing the Gospel accounts in which Jesus announces and institutes the Eucharist. This is followed by a theological explanation of the Eucharist. There is a substantial section dedicated to the various parts of the Mass and liturgical objects used during the Eucharistic celebration. The work also includes a section discussing the importance of the Eucharist to the People of God. The Eucharist forms the heart and the high point of the Church's life because in the Eucharist Christ associates the entire Church and all His members to His own sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving offered to the Father once and for all on the Cross: by this Sacrifice He pours out graces of salvation upon His Body the Church.
